A dynamic data staging area is an archival repository storing cleaned, transformed records and attributes for later loading into data marts and data warehouses. • Operational data stores. “An ODS is a collection of data containing detailed data for the purpose of satisfying the collective, integrated operational needs of the corporation.

The big differences between EIPs and current Web-enabled data warehousing/data mart system applications are the • Integration of content management systems • Increasing emphasis on exchange of data with external data stores and applications • Emphasis on sharing data and information among users • Renewed emphasis on data mining and analytical applications • Emphasis on integration of the disparate applications and data sources into a single, integrated, EIP application Integrating content management leads to an explosion of potential data and information sources for EIPs.

But the purpose of corporate portals is to “expose and deliver business-specific information in context to help today’s computer workers stay ahead of the competition. ” Reynolds and Koulopoulos provide the least emphasis on the decision processing/business intelligence, structured data aspects of portal applications and the strongest emphasis yet on the concept of the portal as support for tasks, workflow, (implicitly) collaboration, and the creation and integration of knowledge. Some emphasis on this aspect is included in Shilakes’s and Tylman’s analysis and in White’s (1999) collaborative processing portals.
